QUEZON CITY--The emotions ran high again in Game 4 of the PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals.

Just as both San Miguel and Ginebra are heading into their respective dugouts at halftime, Joe Devance and Renaldo Balkman got into a heated moment.

Balkman, who scored on a layup to beat the halftime buzzer, was seen pushing Devance, who was ahead of him, to clear some space.

The pushed did not sit well to Devance, who quickly confronted Balkman for the said matter. Cooler heads quickly prevailed in controlling the atmosphere.

Ginebra is ahead, 67-52, at halftime.
